  • 1 ea Pork Tenderloin Large sized if available
  • 6 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheese I like sharp cheddar here
  • 3 ea Jalapeno Peppers Chopped. Seeds removed if less heat desired.
  • 3/4 cup Bacon crumbles
  • 1 tbs Chili Powder
  • 10 ea Slices of bacon You may need more depending on size of tenderloin


  • Gather your ingredients and set the smoker for 275 degrees, indirect. I used apple and cherry wood for this smoke.
  • Combine chopped jalapenos with cream cheese, bacon crumbles, shredded cheese, and chili powder. Mix well.
  • Slice the tenderloin to maximize the stuffing volume (yes, that is a technical term), but don't pierce the other side or ends.
  • Stuff tenderloin with the mixture, wrap with bacon, and use toothpicks as necessary.
  • Smoke until internal temperature is at 165 (around 3 hours) and then let rest prior to slicing.
  • Slice, serve, and enjoy!
